The Canadian military started training Ukrainian sappers in Poland
The Canadian military started teaching the first Canadian-led course for Ukrainian sappers in Poland.
Anita Anand, Canadian Defense Minister, announced this on Twitter.
The training of the Ukrainian military takes place within the framework of increasing Canadian military assistance to Ukraine.
“Today, approximately 40 members of the Canadian Armed Forces began teaching the first Canadian-led course for Ukrainian sappers in Poland. The training focuses on detecting, identifying, and clearing explosives and their use for demolition,” Anand said.
The Head of Canada’s Defence Department emphasized that “these skills will save lives and help Ukrainians defend their country.”
“Canada stands with Ukraine, as its heroic armed forces continue to fight against Russia’s illegal and unjustifiable invasion,” assured Anita Anand.
As previously reported, in October, Canada announced that it would deploy about 40 sappers to Poland to help Polish forces train the Ukrainian sappers in engineering reconnaissance, explosives, and demining.
The Minister added that these instructors are an addition to the Canadian training mission for the Ukrainian military in the United Kingdom and the training program from the Canadian military for the Ukrainian gunners to use M777 howitzers, which Canada provided to Ukraine.
Recently, Canada provided approximately $34 million in additional military assistance to Ukraine.
This military aid package meets the urgent needs identified by Ukraine.
This assistance comes from existing funds and complements the $500 million in additional military assistance for Ukraine that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Monday, November 14.
